Russell Westbrook says he 'stooped down' to Rajon Rondo's level when he got ejected

The frustration stemming from that failure has taken its toll on Washington's stars, but unlike Bradley Beal , who is frequently caught slouching or looking otherwise disappointed, Westbrook has found more active ways of venting his fury.

Westbrook picked up his first technical foul in the second quarter, when he and Rajon Rondo were both charged after an altercation.

Rondo is known for this sort of chippiness, and even famously started a brawl with Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets two seasons ago.

He and the player for whom he was traded, John Wall , got into a heated argument on the floor and were also called for double technicals.

Westbrook has reached the postseason every season since his rookie year, and often contended for championships with the Thunder and Rockets.

He isn't adjusting well to those new circumstances, and it helped the Hawks get a comfortable win over the Wizards on Friday.
